Join us in this episode for a conversation with Lisa Fruichantie, citizen of Seminole Nation of Oklahoma and Executive Director of ALMA, an expansive campus carved out of an old union hall anchored within Tacoma’s historic Hilltop neighborhood. This multifaceted business and venue are devoted to creating community by incubating and presenting a diverse range art, food, culture and music. ALMA includes state-of-the-art recording studios as well as a 500-person performance venue. This place describes itself as a welcoming and inclusive gathering spot that channels, celebrates, and seeks to nourish the soul of this land, the people on it, the people from it, and those just passing through. Lisa, a 20-year mainstay of Tacoma’s art scene, describes her distinct approach to leading her organization, which includes aligning ALMA with indigenous values. “Make them feel welcome. Say “Hello.” Start a conversation. Share space with them. Break bread. I think a meal with someone is one of the most powerful things you can ever do.” ~Lisa Fruichantie
